This year, Home Carpet One will be taking part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes along with a half-million other walkers across the country. Our goal is to raise $90 million to help fund research for a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.

Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating, often deadly disease that affects millions of people--a large and growing percentage of them children.

Many people think type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin. While insulin does keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, it is NOT a cure. Aside from the daily challenges of living with type 1 diabetes, there are many severe, often fatal, complications caused by the disease.

EACH of us can be a part of bringing about a cure. Each of us can make a real difference.

Help support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes by purchasing a sneaker today! Donate $1 and we will put a sneaker with your name on it on our wall and we will contribute a matching gift. We have a goal of raising $3,000 by selling sneakers.

Together, we can make the cure a reality. For more information on JDRF or the Walk on Sunday, October 3, 2010, visit today!

Please visit Home Carpet One’s Walk Web page if you would like to donate online or see how close we are to reaching our personal goal:
